In Arma 3 Unit Insignia, you can read:
« You can add a new insignia in Config.cpp and Description.ext. »

If it's possible to add a cfgUnitInsignia class in a description.ext, please note that the path of the texture differs for server and client in MP environment. Config.cpp (addon) is more reliable. Description.ext, in this case, should be used for SP mission only.
This function calls setObjectTextureGlobal, which is a broken command in MP (see feedback tracker) August 2016.
